Last autumn Anthony removed, restored and re-instated two Victorian sliding-sash windows for us.  They each had rotting wood in several areas and the sills also needed treatment.  The windows were returned with seals and brushes for a closer fit and painting was carried out.  Anthony returned this spring to paint the new putty which needed to completely dry out to avoid cracking. He at the same time checked and over-painted other areas.

We were also advised about secondary double glazing to most practically and economically meet our needs and Anthony supplied and fitted panels to most of our windows.

I would highly recommend Anthony Hughes for window painting, repairs or replacement.  He not only has the necessary skills to physically do the work, but keeps in regular contact with phone calls or emails, turns up when expected, provides fast quotes and listens to the customer in order to recommend the best solution for their situation. He also provides a follow-up service to ensure that the work he has undertaken continues to meet the customers’ needs.

Anthony has been employed by The White Horse Hotel on two occasions for maintenance to the front and rear. As a grade two listed building his team have been sensitive to the buildings age and have performed an excellent job. Anthony is always conscious of the Hotels need to look impeccable and touches up any weathering when he sees the need.

His staff are always courteous and tidy when leaving the site and I would highly recommend them to others.

Our bay window was going rotten and needing urgent attention.  Anthony replaced the doors and side panels for new.  In other places he removed the rotten wood where necessary and joined it to the original.  The small openers at the top hadn’t opened in years and he got these working efficiently.  Finally the whole area was rubbed down (something many painters don’t do!), primed and painted.  We were thrilled with the job Anthony did; I have complete trust in his work, which he completes to a high standard.   This is the second job Anthony has done for us and I would thoroughly recommend him.

We have known Anthony for several years now.  He has done the painting of all our sash windows and recently he has project managed a sensational makeover of our kitchen.  He is delightful, works to the highest standards, cleans up after the job in hand and I would and have recommended Anthony Hughes to many of our friends.

The Chester’sWinchester

Anthony has carried out work for us on numerous occasions and has always been very polite and helpful. His estimates have been very precise, and should any extra work be found, and needs attention he keeps you informed. When his work- men have completed the work he has always carried out an inspection, to make sure it is up to his standard. Yes perhaps a little more expensive than some, but worth the extra cost.

Private Residential Home

Anthony and his colleagues work regularly for me and I can recommend him without hesitation. Estimates are given clearly and accurately, they are punctual and reliable and the quality of the work is very good. They are also polite and respectful when working inside the home which is reassuring for people living alone such as myself.


I found AA Hughes to be excellent and have used them several times. The two young men who did the decorating, Chris and Scott, were prompt, reliable, efficient , trustworthy, polite, friendly and helpful and they worked extremely hard decorating both the inside and outside of my house. Anthony Hughes, who runs the business and dealt with the carpentry along with Luke, was both efficient and helpful and delivered an excellent service. I shall certainly use them again with complete confidence knowing they will do a super job.

The outside of our house was painted in 2014. The work was well executed and there was good attention to detail. Late in the year Anthony supplied and fitted internal glazing. Very pleased with the result. Strongly recommended.


Anthony provides a consistently professional service.  He is efficient and knowledgeable, with a sympathetic understanding of the challenges of an old property.  I have happily recommended him to friends and neighbours and will continue to do so.
